Thanks for having a look at our cotton face masks. The cloth face masks pictured here are made by Debra, Eric, and two local contract sewing goddesses in Easton, Maryland.
Description: Three layer fabric face masks with nose wire and elastic ear straps. Washable for reuse and reversible. For personal use.
We currently use comfortable 1/4" flat elastic for the ear loops on all the masks we make. A few early fabric styles that were produced with paracord elastic earloops are still available as well (7 Leaf, 22 Sparkly Purple Plaid, and 27 Purple Green Leaves).
Each mask has two layers of tightly woven cotton and a third layer in between of Pellon stabilizer/interfacing.
Face Mask Sliding Down Problem? Wire is sewn into a pocket bridging the nose of our fabric Face Masks. Once adjusted to fit, the wire helps prevent gaps around the nose and aids in keeping the mask in place.
The use of an adjustable ear saver device may also be helpful, especially if your face is smaller, your elastic has stretched, or you need to wear a face mask for long periods of time.
The masks are reversible by simply turning inside out and adjusting the wire to fit. One side will have your chosen fabric and the other will be a complimentary color of our choice.
The fabrics have been pre-washed for shrinkage and ironed before construction.
Please wash thoroughly and allow to dry after each venture out!
Care: For best results,
* Hand wash thoroughly in hot soapy water or machine wash (but don't dry in dryer!)
* Allow mask to air dry (excessive heat from dryer may shorten the life of the elastic and also may cause the mask to lose its shape, requiring ironing)
Sizing: We measure from where the top of the ear meets the head, straight across the bridge of the nose, to the same place on the other ear. Our standard masks fit people with a measurement around 11 inches.
If your measurement is more than an inch over (like Eric) or under, please tell us the size(s) needed in the "Note" section of the Cart (or email us). We try to keep Large Black Masks (12") in inventory for immediate shipment, other fabrics may take an extra day or two.
We make child size masks using a much smaller pattern Please contact us for measuring and to see what fabrics/colors are available.
If you purchase a mask and find that the fit is not right, you may contact the artists for replacement.
Our Shopping Cart was primarily designed to ship Feather Hats in boxes much larger than the slim envelope in which we ship the Face Masks. We have set up special rates for Mask Sales which should kick in automatically - if it appears that your shipping charge is unreasonable, please contact us!
